    Windows 10 sees ZTE USB 3G modem as a dialup connection, not cellular


    Hello Everyone,

    I hope you're all doing well *Smile

    I have a 2GB/month data connection on a ZTE USB 3G modem. When I connect, it shows up as a dialup connection in Windows 10, meaning that there is no way for me to make it a metered connection. This morning, Windows ate up 1.1 GB of data in the background while I was online for 30 minutes on Amazon and eBay and checking my email. That's half my data gone in a few minutes! *Eek

    As you can imagine, I was pretty upset. However, I can't seem to find any workaround for this.

    Is there any way to make Windows 10 see that this is a cellular mobile broadband connection? That way I'll be able to set it as a metered connection. Or is there any way to set dialup connections to metered connections? I really can't have all my data being used up in a day.

    Thanks for your time!

    David

    :)

    ZTE MF 667 orange won't work on 1607 pro win 10 !

    Have you downloaded the software required to make the modem work or is that what you're trying to do?

    Have you tried right clicking the installer file & choosing run as administrator?

    Is there a Cellc icon on your desktop?

    Is it Windows 10 compatible? Is the pc up to date with patches/updates?

    Try creating a manual connection rather than running the software, this page tells you how - it's for Mac OS but the actual details of what you need to enter will be the same.

    Samsung GT-I8750: How do I create a dialup connection

    I am using this phone with a TPG sim. The 3G service for TPG is not good so internet sharing cannot be enabled. I would like to use this phone as a dialup modem when I connect it to my Win8 PC or Surface 2 RT through USB.

    Does anyone know how this is done for this phone? or even if this phone is capable of being used as a dialup modem?

    TIA

    Most likely, your modem manufacturer created their drivers as dial-up drivers, which means this was a choice by the modems manufacturer. They would have to create new drivers.

    You are probably either stuck with it as is, or buy a different one.

    Thanks, that's what I feared. It would be nice if Windows 10 had a way to set any connection to a metered one, since that is the case in a few places. The lack of the option is frustrating.

    There may be a registry hack to do so. I am not as familiar with it, so someone else may be able to offer assistance.
